Friday night, September 26, LMS will host a tailgate reception for a “meet and greet” with our new athletic director, Jared Yoder. Light refreshments will be provided.
The event will take place in in the parking area by the concession stand following the girls soccer game with Annville Cleona. The game was moved from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. so that more people can attend the game and this event.
The school is hoping that that all coaches, teams and booster clubs will be present at this event. Booster clubs are being asked to share this information with parents. The organizers hope that everyone wears as much black and gold as possible.
This event is also the first public event for the new “Blazer Nation” Alumni Athletic Club.
